Animation Software?

Hey,

I am a teacher looking to purchase some affordable animation software for my school.  Presently we have an old school digital video lunch box that is hooked up to a picture tube television and a VCR.  Students do their animation and then video the television screen it is done in order to transfer to a computer to edit and add other effects to it. Besides the obvious problems with this, the video lunch box only holds 255 shots!

Looking for recommendations  of affordable…

my first flying object

Using thread, I suspended a helicopter bearing plate from a broom over my set.  I did not have a good way to adjust the length of the thread, so I used several layers of thick cloth (socks) on one side of the broom to allow the plate to descend toward the stage.

Using Dragonframe's increments on a bezier curve, I got the plate to do some vaguely reasonable side to side motion as it came down.
